This is the entry level label for Terre à Terre, still sourced from Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser’s close planted Wrattonbully vineyard. Intended to be more ‘new world’ in style, yet still very much a structured beast.
The only challenge here is that its too young. There is red, ironstone earth and a slightly baked red fruit character (very warm vintage) but otherwise this gives away little. Nice gravelly tannins and the length is good, but otherwise a little raw and lacking in the fruit joy that the price point demands.
Drink next year.
